What can you do
Yes, water! It is needed, no doubt about it! Water makes that your food, energy and the oxygen in your body works good. Everything that doesn't belong is going out of your body as soon as possible and keeps your body at the right temperature.
This can be a cliche, but breakfast is the most important meal of the day and absolutely when you have exams. When you have a good breakfast your glucose amount stays adequate, your brain loves that. Your body gets enough enery to perform if you have carbohydrates like brown bread, granola, baked eggs. It's better not to start with a diet when you have exams, it's possible that your brain thinks more about food and other stuff than the exams. In the exam period it's better to make sure that your body and brain have enough energy to make it through the day.
